Food Truck FAQ
HOW CAN I GET ON THE TRUCK YARD SCHEDULE?
Email us at Houstonevents@texastruckyard.com and provide your name, contact info, type of food you serve, current picture of your truck (we are not accepting trailer submissions at this time), the menu served daily from your truck and any links to website or social media for your food truck. One of our managers will get information about the type of food you serve and where you’re currently operating. After eating at your truck at another location, the manager will schedule you for one of two spots we leave open every month to try out new food trucks. Based on the results from that trial run we will incorporate you into our scheduling process at the first availability.
